in elections. it seems that was a miscalculation. stephanie reports. >> push after ar had come to court -- musharraf had come to court, hoping his bail would be extended once more. instead he was forced to flee. the judge refused to listen. he's accused of treason relating to his decision to suspend the constitution and declare a state of emergency when he still ran the country in 2007. the week has gone from bad to worse for musharraf, who returned to pakistan last month in the hope of making a political comeback. on tuesday, a court in peshawar disqualified from running in the parliamentary elections in may. now he finds himself effectively on the run. lawyers at the islamabad high court want the former president as he went through court, crying out, "look who's running away." >> i expect that that musharraf by the police. >> musharraf has gone to his farmhouse on the outskirts of islamabad, but is protected by high walls, razor wire, and guard towers. aside from the treason case, the former president faces several other legal charges, including the assassination of former prime minis
.s. flag. the funding would be granted to the puerto rico elections commission to conduct objective voter education and a vote on options that would resolve puerto rico's future political status. key congressional leaders in the house and the senate, republican and democrat alike, have already issued statements of support for the president's action, calling it an appropriate response to the local referendum. . my constituents may not have a vote in a government that makes national laws, but they do have a voice and they make that voice heard loud and clear in november. a budget reflects one's priorities and values. i support the president's budget because it shows respect for the democratically express the aspirations of the u.s. citizens that reside in puerto rico and it demonstrates a clear desire to move forward on this complex but critical issue. as the budget request states, the federally sponsored vote is to be one that would result for puerto rico's political status. the only way to resolve the status is through statehood or national sovereignty. puerto rico cannot resolve its stat
without basic rights, whether it is the right to speak their mind or worship freely, or to elect their leaders, or to choose the future they wanted for themselves. i've also seen firsthand what can happen when we work together and encourage change for the better. hat amazing spark that grows into a shining light, a spotlight, if you will, on hope and progress. i've seen personally, the tears running down the faces who have gotten to vote for the first time in their lives. i've seen the joy in young kids who have gone to school for the first time in their lives. i've seen the tears of joy at voting in the philippines when women emerged from the voting booth, casting the ballot for the first time in the 70 years of her life. i met a woman in her home where she was imprisoned. after decades of confinement, not unlike nelson mandela she has come out and been able to forgive and start working alongside her former captors to build a stronger and freer berma. also in benghazi to bring down a dictator and let libya's democratically elected government know of their demands. men and s that
, elected official, law enforcement, they really present us with a set of complex questions. and above all, though, i have to repeat that the justice department, our federal united states department of justice, has the responsibility to enforce the controlled substances act. and that remains unchanged. to -- no state, no executive can nullify a statute that's been passed by congress. as the department of justice has noted, though, federal drug enforcement resources -- just like i did as a police chief -- we prioritize and target the serious crimes. serious crimes of drug dealing, violent crime and trafficking. and let's be clear that law enforcement officials take an oath of office to uphold federal law, and they're going to continue to pursue drug traffickers and drug dealers and transnational criminal organizations, all of which weaken our communities, and they pose very serious threats to our nation. and too often discussions about marijuana, though, dwell on this issue of legalization and whether making the drug more widely and easily available -- which it would be when it becomes lega
hope not. i believe that the people, the american people spoke eloquently in election. that is the hiscttee voted 70% for the democrat. that opens -- perhaps immigration reform was an issue whose time had come. that's why will have an immigration bill. 70% of hispanics voted democratic but it wasn't that they had a change of heart or a change of mind. it's that they had a clear picture. the fog faded from how important this issue was too many people in our country. and i feel very confident about how we go forward on the immigration bill. i commend the a to senators for the work they did. of course, it's a compromise. when i change things? of course, i do think that's what a compromise is about. i'm proud of the pashtuns are recalling the gang of eight? i don't know. bipartisan team in the house that were for democrats, for republicans have been working on this issue for longtime and their proposals are very much like what had been in the senate. so we're pretty happy about the place that it is. don't get me wrong. it's not ago that i would have written. it's not somet
words wrong. before you walk out on the stage. he lost the election when he ran for governor two years later and did everything murphy is said. dwight eisenhower with robert montgomery. more importantly murphy who is also an officer had another protÉge at his famous ronald reagan. everything that reagan did, whether it's the reagan democrats, britain's use of media, everything he did he learn from george murphy, but he did it much better. murphy tutored reagan. reagan intern tutored charlton heston and the have the final person in that grouping would be arnold schwarzenegger who took media a step further, showing you could use 24/7 media which pushed aside as insignificant. he said was important as people who are bored with politics, more than 50% of the elect are at in presidential elections in something like 60% to 70% in gubernatorial elections don't care about politics. if i go on these shows and the reason they don't care about politics to the league of women voters to survey people who don't vote and find out why you don't vote. most are women and the number one reason is they d
. the fact is, they held to what they said they would do. they held an election. they created a democracy. the people who won are surprised by the folks. it did not surprise others given the base of the country. they had a democracy. they had an election. it turned over their power and went back to the barracks. they have been an important ingredient to the people of israel. right now, the gauze the piece is holding because of the relationship and the intel to intel relationship. we do not want to lose that. i would love a rigid of love to make an economic effort larger, but as the chairman knows, we work with the chairman, and others, to try to have some component of economic assistance. unless there is economic reform in egypt, unless they can meet the imf standards, unless they reach out to the opposition, unless they create stability and a capacity to invite capital back from other countries, with the sense of security created, unless those things happen, right now, giving more money would actually be not too good avail. >> thank you. >> we go to tulsa of hawaii. presenceyou for your

hispanic voters into the election threat which if history is any indicator would be a good threupbg fo thing for democrats. joe trippi a former howard dean campaign manager and fox news contributor. do you believe the immigration bill on balance would be a bigger net benefit to democratic politicians? >> i think it will benefit both parties. one of the problems that the republicans have had is that their opposition to immigration reform to reaching a compromise has really hurt them in the latino and hispanic communities. it's one of the reasons that after george bush got 4 4% of their votes in 2008 -- swore, excus2004, excuse me. the hispanic support has been declining nationwide. finding a compromise would help republicans start to talk to hispanics. they are much morey lidge justly -- they are a very religious community. there are tkpwrourpbdz on values and other things that republic republicans could talk to the hispanic community and actually start winning their votes again as george bush had reached out to them. in the very beginning as the people become citizens and are eligible
in the last election was they can no longer take such an extremist approach to issues of immigration. >> bill: as somebody put it, it will happen because democrats want it and republicans need it. >> that's right. think about the political distance we've traveled in such a short period of time. we've gone from november where the republican presidential candidate said he would veto the dream act right? it would allow young people the opportunity to work toward citizenship. >> bill: where he was talking about self-deportation. >> here we are. you know, eight months later. where we're talking about the possibility of a bipartisan immigration reform bill. so let's just keep the momentum moving. it is really going to be important that people be engaged this issue. >> bill: is there the same willingness to cooperate and maybe hammer out a compromise agreement on immigration reform in the house as we've seen in the senate? >> well, interestingly, there is a bipartisan group in the house that has also been negotiating immigration reform. that being said, in the house you also have a much stronger res
been one where there has been a lot of uncertainty. part of that by our election and the changing government in china. and part of it uncertainty by what's going on in europe. as these things settle out. as china gets more secure in its path forward based on government change, as we continue to make progress in this country towards our issues, i think you will see that confidence build. industrial production only 1% in the first quarter. it's predicted to be 2.5% of the year. auto builds down 1% in the u.s. i'm sorry. down 1% in the world in the first quarter. supposed to be up 2% for the year. so i think there's a belief that 2013 is going to strengthen with each quarter as we go through it. >> ellen, thank you very much for joining us today. >> great. it's a pleasure. thank you, becky. >>> when we come back, apple trying to turn things around after a tough winter. up next, we will get a preview from analyst paul meeks. revolutionizing an industry can be a tough act to follow, but at xerox we've embraced a new role. working behind the scenes to provide companies with services...
